Orlando is about to ruin a good thing

Orlando is about to ruin a good thing

They're apparently looking to trade for Vince Carter. The New Jersey Nets are in serious talks with the Magic about a deal that will send Vince Carter to Orlando for Rafer Alston, Tony Battie and Courtney Lee, two league sources told ESPN.com. The talks have reached a point that a deal could be done by [...]

Superchoke

Courtney Lee is off the hook. Dwight Howard is the new goat of this series. Yes, I know he sucks at free throws. But if Howard makes one of the two freebies with 11 seconds left and Orlando up 3, the Magic win this game. There's no second-guessing Stan Van Gundy for not-fouling the Lakers. [...]

Pau Gasol admits to being a total pussy

Pau Gasol admits to being a total pussy

It's no secret that Pau Gasol is soft.  But this one takes the cake.  He basically announced to the world that he's a total pussy by saying Dwight Howard is too physical. “(Dwight Howard) is allowed to do physically a couple more things here at home,’ Gasol said after the game. Asked if those ‘things’ [...]

Blueprint for beating Kobe and the Lakers

Blueprint for beating Kobe and the Lakers

Chuck and I were swilling beers last night and talking hoops and just marveling at Kobe Bryant's 3rd quarter in Game 1 of the Finals.  Simply put, no matter how much we hate that guy, he put on an amazing show.  The Lakers looked unbeatable.  But… they're not. First, the Lakers have a horrible habit [...]

Et tu, Larry?

Et tu, Larry?

You know, I'm having a hard enough time coping with Kobe Bryant's seemingly eventual championship (and the onslaught of Laker trolls that will hit this site)… the last thing I needed was to hear Larry Bird's current favorite player is a Laker. Johnson: Larry Bird told me that Kobe Bryant is his favorite player. How [...]

We can thank Clifford Ray for Dwight Howard

We can thank Clifford Ray for Dwight Howard

Photo from reader Jesse Haley's parade photos on Flickr Clifford Ray and Robert Parish run a big man camp every year… and one of Cliff's former pupils is Dwight Howard.  With Dwight now in the spotlight and about to lead his team to a sweep of the Lakers (hey, I can dream), Cliff has reason [...]

Welcome to “Pat’s Army”

Welcome to “Pat’s Army”

There have been a lot of suggestions about what to call ourselves in our continued war against anything "Lakers."  I appreciate all of them, but I'm going to go a different route.  I'm sticking with the theme of naming the site after a key historical figure.  And who's more key to Orlando's history than Pat [...]

Look Who Showed Up

Look Who Showed Up

Every now and then you get that wow-this-guy-could-be-really-good performance from Lamar Odom and last night was the night. Give the Lakers credit – they played defense (12 blocked shots, Denver shot 38%) and Kobe (8 assists) passed the ball to guys who made plays (Odom 19 pts, Ariza 12 pts, Fisher 12 pts). Denver may [...]

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

I told ya'll the other day that we find it really disrespectful that everybody seems to be pulling for LeBron and Kobe to get to the Finals. Every time I look at TV, it seems like that's all anybody is talking about. It's like nobody is even giving us a shot at winning this series [...]

Is Dwight Really Dominant?

Is Dwight Really Dominant?

SevenSecondsOrMess does a great job breaking down video.  Today, it's Dwight Howard and his offensive game under the microscope.  Once again, TV analysts seem to accept some misconceptions about Dwight Howard being a dominant player.  Even last night, in a monster game, he didn't score very often on an offensive move.  He dominated the boards.  [...]
